We went there for our anniversary, after hearing one of our friends raving about Pear Tree all the time. Pear Tree has an unpretentious decor and can be easily missed when you are walking by. We had a groupon for a five course meal and all the dishes were delicious and beautifully presented. Wine pairing was great and service was... More

Have been going to Pear Tree since it's humble small beginning. Many memorable dinners here and have recommended it to business associates, friends and family. Very disappointed last month for anniversary dinner. Food: menu doesn't change very much. Boring tossed Caesar salad that I could have had at any chain restaurant. Lamb usually very good but dry this time Service:... More

Where to start? First, it's a restaurant where you can talk. And the service is excellent. And there are good wines. But it's the food you went for, and you won't be disappointed. The basic principal seems to be that each plate starts with two major notes - so that in the course of the meal you have a succession... More

We have visited this restaurant a number of times and each time said "why did we wait so long to come back?" It has never disappointed on service nor on food quality. It is a tucked away location and could be easy to miss but it has sublime food and well worth seeking out.

We have been going to the Pear Tree since it opened. The food is excellent and the staff are very knowledgeable about the menu. Highly recommended.

The Pear Tree is a wonderful restaurant with excellent service. It is a bit east of Vancouver in the city of Burnaby. The short drive is worth it. The chef/owner is talented, knowledgeable and approachable which makes for a unique dining experience. We not only enjoy our meals here but also benefit from local information about food and wine. It... More

Ours was a set menu with paired wines that were superbly chosen to fit each of 4 courses. Each course was filled with delectable and surprise tastes that worked well together. Also, artistic presentation. My favourites were the duck, risotto and scallops but everything was good. Oh yes, and Earl Grey Tea ice cream, how nice!

I've been to pear tree twice and both experiences have been memorable. The sophisticated atmosphere belies the storefont location on a busy street. It's not inexpensive, but then you tend to get what you pay for.

My husband and I celebrated our 28th anniversary at the Pear Tree on December 28th. We love French cuisine and are lucky that the Pear Tree is not too far from home. This is a real gem in Burnaby. This is a small restaurant with an unassuming appearance, in fact I have driven past this location and have never noticed... More

Food was amazing. We felt like royalty with all of the cutlery changes. Did anniversary menu. All were delectable. Favs were trout on butternut squash and best duck I have ever had. My Mom loved the ham terrine. My second visit and I will come again. Wish I could afford once per week! Not open for lunch.
